House cocktails (Mezcalina, Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita) were well balanced and made with fresh ingredients. The queso fundido and fish ceviche were delicious. Mains were mixed...More

Spent 6 months living in San Antonio for work. Sadly, I did not discover this place until the very end of my stint. I love this place. Great margs (skinny in particular) and to die for cheese enchiladas. I would have branched out and tried...More
